Using Leftovers

This January for the The 12 Kits of Occasions we are using some of the many leftovers we have from the past years. 
We have some members that are stepping down but never gone as we can still see their beautiful creations as they post them and they will always be in our hearts. We will also have some past members come back and we welcome them back!

  The card above was made using an already cut paper , all I did was cut the middle out with :Papertrey Ink  - Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches Die Collection (set of 4) then stamped with:Balloon Bash Stamp Set also fro Papertrey Ink.
The card below , I used patterned paper from a kit and used Mama Elephant creative cuts , and the same Papertrey Ink stamps and dies as from above and  Concord & 9th Cozy up die . 

 All I did for the card above was add Comforting Commands Stamp Set from The Greetery. Below I just added the already stamped airplane to the already stamped panel.

For the card below I used copic markers to go over the white dots on the Thank you die-cut, then used an envelope die( W Plus 9) with some leftover patterned paper from Jeanne's Kit.

On this card above I used some products from my own:  July Summer 2018 Kit. All I did was add the lemons to the already cut panel from Poppystamps Delicate Branch Collage. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.
I really enjoyed using some of the leftovers , I know how hard everyone works on creating there kit and I hate to see any of it go to waste.
Please stop by The 12 Kits of Occasions to see all the new guest  joining us this month and the design team.
Thank you for the visit
God bless you!

Just a Note

So happy to find some time to play with my new stamps from The Greetery !

We had the whole family over for my husbands birthday so I was busy with that. It was such a nice day we all played games and hung outside for most of the day. So blessed to have all the kids home at the same time.

 Here are the links to the stamps and dies I used: Signed & Sealed Stamp Set.  Signed & Sealed With a Kiss Stamp Set.   Signed & Sealed With a Kiss Die.  Windowpane Plaid Background Stamp

I am so in love with the large rubber windowpane stamp from The Greetery. I didn't buy the die that went with the Signed & Sealed Stamp Set because it looked easy enough to fussy cut and it was. I used an  exacto knit and a ruler. It was easy enough but I missed the rounded edge of the dies. 
I used memory box Heart Bouquet Embossing folder

Thanks for the visit , hope you have a wonderful week!

Keeping Christmas

The : Merry Christmas stamp on the envelope was made 
by my daughter.

 Hi there friends. Welcome to the first Keeping Christmas Hop of 2020.
 I am happy to say that I am joining the Keeping Christmas group, blog hop every month. I love making Christmas cards all year long.

I was so behind in Christmas cards again last year, that I knew this would keep me ahead and be able to make some quality Christmas cards and get some beautiful inspiration along the way. Hope you will too!

Hello there!  It’s the 25th of the month and I have my first round of Christmas cards for the year on my blog today for our Monthly Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.  Kelly Lunceford started this many months ago (February 25, 2017) and eventually the former "The Challenge" designers came to be a part of it.  We share Christmas cards and projects with you on the 25th of each month to show you different ideas, techniques or projects to help you get a jump start on your Holiday cards and tags for the coming year.  All of the designers have projects to share with you today.  We have 3 new members this year and I know they are names you’ll recognize!  Here is the Blog Roll:

I colored all the leaves and berries with oxide inks using my taylored expression blending brushes.

 I scored the front panel at 1/2 inch then turned the panel and scored again . Each leaf is layered two times so that the top layer can be fooled up a bit.

 I used the new Simon Says Stamp die called Holly and Berries Tag. The Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and a big favorite of mine, for Christmas.

Sending Hugs and Kisses

Hello, hope you are all doing something fun this weekend and or spending time with those you love.
I have a card using some of my new Poppystamps, stamps and dies today. Also my turn to post on the Poppystamps blog today.

I used the negative of the die as a mask , once removed I placed the die on top. The left side is hidden by the die, very simple.

 I used Poppystamps Floral Lace Heart Split Border die and Valentine's Fun stamp. The lace heart is layered three times to add a bit of dimension to the card.

Thanks for the visit.
God bless.
